My daughter, Emma is just 5 months old but certain debates with my husband, family and friends have already been thoroughly discussed. One of these being drinks.
I have always (We've been pregnant several times) been open about the fact that I will not let my kids have any other drink besides water and milk as long as they are little.
Several of my friends and my 3 sisters have called me hysterical. My sisters have 9 kids from 3-15 and they all say, that their kids have had juice, soda, coffee and those kind of drink around the age of 3.
I am staying put, I will not be giving Emma juice in her sippy cup and I will not let her taste any kinds of soda as long as I can get around it. I do have one friend agreeing with me. Her kids aged 6 & 3 haven't had any soda, though juice.
I still believe it's the best thing but maybe I am being hysterical!
You who have older kids, what do you allow your kids to drink and was that your plan from the get going?
You who have younger kids like me, do you plan on giving your kids any juice, soda etc.?
